6. Victoria vs. Molly Holly – WrestleMania XX
As the story goes, Molly Holly really fought to make it on to this card. In an interview with Ring the Belle, the former champion, recalled, “the writers told me that there was only room for one women’s match at WrestleMania. They were going to do a pillow fight or a mud match. I was really devastated and thought I gotta come up with something that makes them change their minds.”
“So, I put a bald cap on and had my photo taken. I made a booklet with a bunch of different storylines showing my head getting shaved. I presented it to Stephanie McMahon and some of the writers and said: “I’m willing to shave my head, can I please be on WrestleMania?”
The rest is history. The title vs hair match at WrestleMania 20 not only showcased some of the best wrestling in a women’s match on the pay-per-view, but it provided one of the most memorable moments.
Molly and Victoria have great chemistry together and it would’ve been tragic if the only women’s bout on the card was a Playboy Evening Gown match. Yes, it is also a shame Holly had to go this far for the chance to defend the title at WrestleMania.
However, there is also something to be said about her determination to make quality women’s wrestling a part of the event. It makes you appreciated this great match, even more, knowing she really pushed to make it happen.
